Through April 19 we have 2,653 spring chinook counted crossing over Bonneville Dam, the first dam of eight any Idaho fish has to cross. Last year by that date we had 1,463 beyond Bonneville Dam.
Where the concern comes is from the 10 year average of 21,113 spring chinook.
Steelhead sat at 2,411 and 756 wild steelhead across Bonneville April 19. Last year there were 3,753 steelhead and 1,190 wild steelhead on April 19. The 10-year average is 3,445 steelhead and 894 wild steelhead.
The run isn't going to be great this year. But it is still too early to tell where it will rank among other years in recent memory.
